Missoula Police recover $10,000 in snowboarding gear stolen from a car parked at a hotel.

Police said they responded to a break-in of a vehicle parked at a hotel on N. Reserve St. on Saturday morning.

They estimated approximately $10,000 in snowboard gear and vehicle parts were stolen from the vehicle.

They said they have identified a suspect, who is being sought for questioning.

Anyone with information about this theft is asked to contact Detective Mitch Lang at 552-6292, or Missoula Crime Stoppers at 721-4444.
